The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has racked up its fair share of accolades in recent months, including three from Wards Automotive – a 10 Best Engines award, 10 Best Interior honors, and a 10 Best UX award, as well as a second-place finish in the 2021 J.D. Power Seat Quality Study, and a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Now, the Mach-E can add yet another pair of distinctions to its trophy case, as the EV crossover has scored a perfect five stars in both the Euro NCAP and Green NCAP assessments.
The Euro NCAP – a European voluntary car safety performance assessment program – aims to provide information for consumers on the safety of new vehicles. In independent crash testing, the Ford Mustang Mach-E scored 92 percent for adults and 86 percent for child occupant protection, much of which can be attributed to the EV’s abundance of safety technology including Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Lane Centering, Pre-Collision Assist with Auto Emergency Braking, and Lane-Keeping System with Blind Spot Assist.
The Mustang Mach-E is now one of six European Ford models with electrified powertrains that have achieved a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, including the Ford Puma, Kuga, Ford Explorer Plug‑In Hybrid, Focus, and Fiesta.
Meanwhile, in the Green NCAP test, the Mach-E achieved a 94 percent energy efficiency score and 100 percent marks for its operation in cold and warm condition laboratory tests, clean air, and greenhouse gas tests conducted by the independent authority.
“Mustang Mach-E was developed from the ground up as an all-electric vehicle, so we could develop safety and environmental performance into every corner of the all-new design,” said Stuart Southgate, director, Safety Engineering, Ford of Europe. “The result is that customers can be confident they’re driving a vehicle that can look after them just as much as it looks after the environment.”
